Tamatea Tides is the perfect getaway pad. Right on the beach and with amenities close by, it has everything you need and more. Great for an older child with parks, cycle path and safe swimming beach. Love the retro vibe of the apartment.

Great location had everything we needed will stay again

Stayed October 2018

Sitting on the deck, having a BBQ and watching the amazing sunsets over the ocean through the trees - fantastic! There is a great walkway between the property and the beachfront where everyone comes to walk their dogs or cycle by. The property is close to wineries and fantastic beaches - lots to see and do in the surrounding areas. The place itself was neat and tidy, a little outdated but it had everything that you would need. I would not hesitate to go back there again.
